“Best ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2011

I had a very very very excellent stay during the weekend that just passed with my fiancé and I have to say, it was more than I have expected. Room was clean and prepared. Delightfully surprised that all switches were touch sensitive with led backlight, wide range of music for your room-mood.

Although the garden's mattress was very stained and housekeeping have already left, it did not dampen my mood as my stay was only a day and we did not have time to relax out there. (weather was v humid too).

All in all, service was great, breakfast spread was not alot but the nice place and service def made it up, room was wonderful, entire place was clean and chic. Def returning for another weekend break, away from hustle n bustle of the city.

It's such a nice, trendy, boutique hotel. The first walk in you will feel such a fresh aroma (they have THANN sanctuary spa in the hotel as well). The hotel is so private, warm with staff with a great attitude & so polite. Everything they treat you is so personal & flexible..but of course with the standard they set high. You will feel important, welcomed and enjoy the hospitality. And the room itself is decorated so nice...with see through bathroom with big glass window that can see outside to the park (but some other rooms would have balcony..and so on..different sections different decoration I guess). So for me, I would recommend more than 100% for anyone to try if you have chance. And the location is near Orchard as well.

Dear PencilBangkok

Thank you for choosing Hotel Fort Canning as your choice of accommodation in Singapore. It is indeed our pleasure to have you with us. Your kind of words of praise to the hotel is very much appreciated.

The aromatic scent that we are using in our hotel lobby is Szense Natura (Ginger Flower Intense). This scent is a mix of ginger flowers which its perennial plant with a thick fibrous, knotted rhizome that is highly aromatic. The oils distilled from the roots and flowers produces perfume that is rich and uplifting, blending well with lavender, lemon, oregano and petit grain. As such, the scent is usually a mixed of few different flowers and plant to create a signature scent that leaves a sweet memory in the rooms.

Hotel Fort Canning introduces Szense Natura to the hotel lobby in January 2011. The scent is to evoke specific emotion from guests. Hotel Fort Canning hopes a whiff to Szense Natura will help calm guests down and diffuse stress from their trip.

Once again, thank you for taking time to share your experience with us. We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back to Hotel Fort Canning soon.

Yours sincerely

I have been going back to HFC over the past few months, and it gets better and better! The service is top class and blew me away when each morning, as I walk in for my conference, the HFC staff prepares a cup of coffee, to perfection, just the way I like it. My collegue was made special beverages which were not on the menu, as she was pregnant, and the HFC staff remember exactly the kind of coffee each guest likes. This personalized attention is something I have not experianced anywhere else in the world to date. The rustic ambience of the hotel, with the little things which make the difference sets it apart from other hotels, and this was the mutual consensus from my Asian team, comprising of delegates from 6 countries. We now have expectations which will be very hard to beat......... unless HFC go global! I will not stay in any other hotel when in Singapore, for sure.

We found this hotel through tripadvisor and out travel agent secured a very good rate. i t was just as we expected. The staff were always friendly and helpful. We did get wet getting to breakfast, as we couldn't find an undercover walkway. The breakfast chef was delightlful, by Day 3 he was making my omeltte as i appeared at the Buffet! The hotel souroundings are beautiful. This hotel was a perfect place to spend a few days on our way home from Europe.
PS I do agree with a previous reviewer about the towel rails.

I am a frequent business traveler and was assigned to Hotel Fort Canning through my company for a month-long stay. Everything about this place speaks class and service. From the state-of-the-art amenities to the first-class treatment, I am hard pressed to find better accomadations in Singapore.

The hotel is actually part of a country club, nestled within historic Fort Canning Park, a beautiful backdrop to a fantastic hotel. Everything is within walking distance...shopping, food, entertainment. My favorite activities during my stay: walk or jog around the park, grab a bite to eat at the Glass House (shout-outs to Ganga and Jesse!), or catch a few rays at the lagoon-like pool. The staff is amazing and made me feel at home. The beds are soft and the food is excellent...what more can you ask for?

Room Tip: get a room facing the back courtyard - better view

I had a fantastic stay at the hotel fort canning! You are always greeted with a smile and hello whenever you come in. i would like extend my special thanks to guest relations manager kelson yeo and jasmin faruk for making my stay a unforgettable one. They have been very helpful and went the extra miles each time i needed assistance. Decor in the room is excellent except for some lighting problems which i need to address.. hotel fort canning offers a great selection of gym equipment, i love the swimming pool very much. breakfast was so so needed more improvement. . cocktails at the private lounge was wonderful normally when i stay in 4 or 5 stars hotel u need to be a club guest to enjoy the perks. . i strongly recommend young couple to enjoy this historical romance in the park. . i will be back for sure

Indeed the park walk is one of the must-do activities when you are here. It will give you a glimpse of Singapore’s yesteryears and many other interesting sites to explore. The Hotel offers twice weekly one-hour guided Heritage Trail for guests who are interested to discover the secrets of this heritage city park.

We have also noted your comments which has since been highlighted to the Food & Beverage Department for improvement to be made
